I'm a bit confused about which wires were broken. Was it the 3 wires coming from the back of the gimbal or the wires inside the gimbal?
Two of the wires supply power to the gimbal and camera from the Q500. The third wire is the one that sends the signal to move the camera up and down.

Ouch!! Sorry to hear that. I think there is a problem internally with the gimbal. You need to call Yuneec. It sounds like they will have to repair it. They are very good and the repair will not be expensive.

I did the same thing with mine. Hard crash onto concrete....after it hit my roof and rolled up it then back down it to the ground.
My cam did the same thing. Wouldn't tilt. I called yuneec and there labor cost was $80 an hour.
The tech told me that the camera and gimbal are 1 unit so buying the gimbal wasn't an option. I looked into getting a new camera $499.
It will make you sick.
I never found a fix for it. I opted not to have yuneec repair it because I found a steadygrip with a case, lipo battery that came with the 4k cgo3 camera for $349.
Would Ithat been cheaper having them fix it....maybe alittle or maybe they would have said it wasn't worth fixing. .....
$349 is alot of money but it isn't $499
And I do fly more carefully now.
Hope you can get it repaired cheaply. If not look on Amazon

Have you tried to reach bind it?
I've had mine stop working and had to go into flight settings and select it.

Yeah. Did various methods for rebinding as well.

Gimbal just won't initialize and no tilt controls.
I get video feed though
